What’s Working on Wednesday a Winner and a Giveaway

 

This week finds me working on all kinds of things. I finished a shawlette/scarf I started (I’m ashamed to say) last February. Actually that’s not true, I finished 2 shawls, both from last February!

I also started this Valentine mug rug. Since my backing fabric has not arrived I haven’t quilted my Confetti quilt! Fingers crossed it arrives today.

Your shawls are lovely! I usually only buy yardage. I rarely know what I am making and I like to buy only fabric I like so precursor just don't work well for me.

I just love your shawls. I like to buy yardage (end of the bolt sales are great), but occassonally like a JR or FQ bundle depending if a line tickles me.

Your shawls are very pretty. I buy a combo of precuts and yardage. Pre-cuts are great to have a piece of every line in a collection and then I usually go and buy yardage of my favorites.

Love your shawls. I sometimes buy the 2 1/2 inch strips but most times I buy yardage!!

Dee said...

Thanks Char! Sew excited to try this pattern out! As always, the shawls are beautiful!

Gill said...

Congratulations to Dee!
I usually buy yardage but charm packs are handy for making a quick baby quilt or something!!

I love it all precuts and yards

Your shawls are beautiful. It must feel wonderful to wear them! I usually buy yardage because it is more economical, but I do love precuts because of all the variety that comes in one set. It's like a box of yummy candy! Thanks for sharing, and I hope you are still having a wonderful birthday month.

I buy precursor because you can play with so many different fabrics that way. I will buy yardage of my very favorites!

Rosa said...

Beautiful shawls.I love to buy yardage and fat quarter and I do precuts to have a variety of fabrics.

Marsha Cooper said...

Due to the cost, I have to admit that I have never bought pre-cuts! I would so love for the convenience but my pocket book can't take it.
This would be an awesome win.
Happy Birthday :)

Michele T said...

I buy both precuts and yardage... it all depends on what project I am planning, what catches my eye, and what is on sale!! Thanks for your generosity and a fun way to celebrate your birthday!!

Pamela said...

I must say that I love working with pre-cuts, but I try not to buy them unless I have a definite plan for using them!

Emma said...

I buy both. I buy charm packs when I see a fabric line I want to play with. Otherwise, I usually buy yardage.

Astrid said...

Your shawls are beautiful. A cute mug rug too. I prefer yardage, because I do not like that pinking thing or what it is called on precuts... :)

Kathy Kinsella said...

Great WIPs, Char ... I love the shawlette, particularly.
I have actually never used pre-cuts, although they do appeal to me because they are ready-to-go :)

Sheila said...

What beautiful knitting. You inspire me to branch out with my knitting and crochet.
Happy Birthday! And LOVELY giveaway. I hope I win : )

I usually buy yardage, but I really like scraps and precuts are sort of like that and fun to use. Thanks for the chance.
